In the red, sun-drenched sands of the Martian desert is a little
town on the edge of nowhere that should never have existed at all.
Founded by accident and nurtured on the bizarre and wondrous dreams of
the planet's outcasts, Desolation Road sprang into being. And in its
short, thirty-year history it entertained every concievable cosmic
abnormality the Multiverse had to offer, from Adam Black's
Wonderful Travelling Chautauqua and Educational 'Stravaganza (with
captive heavenly angel) to The Amazing Scorn - Mutant Master of
Scintillating Sarcasm and Rapid Repartee. And in this
inconsequential place was fought a battle so extraordinary that time
itself had to be readjusted.
